Rowing involves the pulling of oars through the water to propel a boat in the desired direction. The only catch; you are facing the opposite direction to the direction of travel. The metal fitting that holds the oar is called an oarlock (also called rowlock - "rollock").


Grab some oars and learn to row in our Smartwave rowing boats. We also provide rowing boats that seat up to 6 people for those of you who are up for the teamwork challenge.


Rowing is the perfect activity for those of you who prefer to stay dry!


Ideal for daily exercise or family fun on the water.

Sculling over the stern (back of the boat) is an extra skill you can learn.
